Here is a list of the browsers that are currently supported and tested for use with the OU Campus interface. Please note that this list is not related to the browsers that an institution may choose to support for visitors to web sites that are managed in OU Campus.
Currently the following browsers are supported:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer (versions 11 and up) and Edge
- Mozilla Firefox
- Google Chrome
- Apple Mac OS X Safari
Opening Multiple Browser Tabs
When working in OU Campus, it is common to open multiple tabs to work on pages or files simultaneously. Due to the nature of browser limits and opening connections within OU Campus, it is strongly recommended that you limit your number of open tabs to four or fewer. Having five or more tabs open in the same browser will lead to a slow browser response.
If you do need to have additional tabs open, a work-around is to open more in a different browser (i.e., the maximum four tabs in Chrome, and then an additional tab in Firefox).
Browser Behaviors for Cut, Copy, Paste
Many browsers disable the use of the cut, copy, and paste commands via the WYSIWYG toolbar for security purposes. This is not a function of OU Campus; this is a browser behavior. The alternative workaround is to use keyboard shortcuts.
Previously, the security preferences for Firefox, Mac and PC, could be edited to allow for the use of the cut, copy, and paste tools in the WYSIWYG Editor. This work-around cannot be proven effective for all Firefox users and the topic has been removed from the Support Sites.

|Webkit(Chrome, Safari)||Toolbar buttons not supported; user is prompted to use keyboard shortcuts.|
